City of Heroes to Close Tonight

Published on November 30th, 2012

Time to roll out as your favourite superhero creation for the last time.

Despite massive efforts from the Titan Network and the ‘Save CoH’ community, servers will switch off tonight (Friday, 20th November) at the stroke of midnight.

As long as the servers sustain the strain of lots of players logging in at once, City of Heroes final night in service should be a great celebration.

To be precise servers will close at 12am PST tomorrow with European servers closing at 8am GMT.

Like any well supported MMORPG there are lots of events taking place organised by the game’s community, but we’re throwing our weight behind Titan Network’s in-game antics. The Unity Rally, subtitled ‘Last Goodbye’, will take place in the City Hall in Atlas Park on every server one hour before the game is set to close.

“We’re inviting everyone to come to Atlas Park in your home server. We’ll get started at 11 PM PST on November 30th. That’s just one hour before the end. Join us for speeches, torchlight vigils, and the biggest party possible! We’ll spend the final moments together as a unified community,” states the post on the Titan Network inviting everyone to the in-game celebration.

City of Heroes will soon be gone, but we suspect the protest to resurrect the superhero MMO will go on.

Unfortunately NCSoft has locked off character creation for City of Heroes, so there’s no possibility for those who don’t have an existing online presence in Paragon City to join in the fun. That said, it’s well worth digging out those log-in details if you have them, as this celebration of all things spandex is sure to be a memorable send off.

We’ll be on Europe’s Virtue server. If you fancy sending off this excellent MMO in style by joining us,  just search for the character Hybrid Hacker. He’ll be there in all his neon blue, cross-hatch suited glory!

City of Heroes is about to disappear, quite possibly forever, but if you’ve ever spent any time with this acclaimed superhero experience we wholeheartedly wish that you head onto your favourite server and say goodbye in style.

City of Heroes first launched in April 2004 and we’ll be genuinely sad to see it go.
